Recently, we were traveling through the Big Apple. I watched hundreds ofTHOUSANDS of people running back-and-forth… but I felt no connection toany of them!
Because I had no relationship with these people… SOMETHING WAS MISSING. Iwas in a crowd, but still felt all alone!
There are plenty of people who have a pulse, yet have no sense ofcommunity.
When I got back to my church family, I found myself surrounded by the people that I LOVE.What a difference it is to be in a place where you have RELATIONSHIPS!
Positive relationships will take us higher. They bring out the BEST in us. They energize, inspire and validate us!
It’s tempting to take those people lightly and not realize they are our TRUEFRIENDS! A friend is one of the greatest treasures in life!
These types of relationships require commitment, time, energy, and areciprocating investment from both parties.
Notice I said, “BOTH” parties!
If you’re in a relationship where you’re doing all the GIVING and they’redoing all the RECEIVING, then that might not be a true friendship.(hello!!!!)
Do you have any TRUE FRIENDS that always have your back? (Let’s see that hands up emoji)
David and I will be taking a hard and hilarious look at ALL KINDS of personal relationships, this weekend, as the ‘He Said, She Said” series continues at FaithChurch.com.
